The Carlisle Air Optimizer utilizes compressed air "Bleed" into the fuel gases through two venturi mixers mounted at the burner valve body. By premixing the gas, the optimizer decreases the BTU capacity per cubic foot of a specific fuel gas. This changes the dynamics and flame characteristics. With propane, the flame becomes more focused and narrow with the use of the optimizer. This also helps reduce the "burning out" or "muting" of more certain colors. In order to produce the same amount of heat, a greater volume of gases must pass through the burner. As the flow increases, the gases travel faster. High gas velocity results in less heat transfer back into the burner, allowing the burner to operate cooler. Compressed air is less costly than compressed oxygen which saves money too.
